Stop Being a Bummer! Know your limitations to avoid being spammer.

Most hosting providers will limit the number of emails a single site may send. Either limiting the number of emails per hour or per day. This is their job, to make sure no one user needlessly impacts the other sites on that machine.

BEcause, many people are running phpList on hosted servers they do not own or manage. These are usually shared boxes: that is, one computer has lots of web sites on it. This means that if one web site attempts to dominate the CPU or otherwise behave in a non-community-minded, limited resource way, everyone suffers.

Another, perhaps better reason providers will limit your email resources is that they don't want to host spammers. So, what does this mean to you, a non-spammer? You must check with your hosting provider before sending your first mailing. Ask: Is there a daily limit? Is there an hourly limit? Odds are that there is. Then use the following settings in the config.php file to safely live within these limits.

Here are some guides in regard with your host’s limitations if you’re sending with your own website.
